Dear readers and customers,
the digitalisation revolutionised how readers consume books. Thus the term eBook was born, an abbreviation for electronic book.
Today, most of us will have such a book reader in some kind of form: be it through specialised devices from online retailers, or simply built in into their operating system via apps on a smartphone and/or tablet.
There are some sources too with which integrating large libraries is convenient to get those eBooks, such as the Project Gutenberg. However, sometimes this can be not enough. There’s also the chance that your research, be it private or academic, includes something else as the Western canon, which the Gutenberg project very thoroughly provides.
Some lesser known sources are sometimes available on the web, two of which we want to present to you today.
- the first one is http://libgen.rs/.
This very minimalistic search engine will let you search for non-fiction/sci-tech; fiction; scientific articles or magazines
Afterwards you can download them directly, or view them on the web
There are search parameters for ISBN, title, authors, etc. too, in case you know already what you are looking for
This is also an academic tip in case you need your money at the end of the month more for groceries than for written stuff on paper: you will be able to use this resource for University too
the second one is a bit more fancy: https://1lib.ch/
You can switch here between a general search or a fulltext search, the first of course also with ISBN, author, and so on
Also provides an entry with book covers if you’re on the hunt
From what we saw on the detail pages, eBooks are in the popular epub format (in which our eBooks are sold too) and can be sent directly to some devices or via Email
In sum you can look up over 8.6 million books and over 84 million articles
Should be useable for academic research also
And last but not least: of course you can also find eBooks directly by us, if you need cyberpunk and web history reasearch for instance: eBooks by AETHYX MEDIAE.
Happy reading and have a nice day,
the aethyx staff
